Choke The Sky...


Within the midnight stars is where I choke the sky,

I'm bleeding with madness and I see the devil's eye,

Still,

I want a life,

Tired of being sacrificed in the time I should fight,

Starvation of self love,

Now is the time,

Tonight is the night.

Tonight, I choke the sky.


I squeeze what life is left of mine,

I feed from a bottomless pit of lies,

I breathe with chills running down my spine,

Tonight I cry,

Tonight I choke the sky.


I hope from the belly of the beast, to the glory of the gods,

I pray to the child in me, to the man I was born to be,

I sit alone beneath shards of broken mirrors, reflecting my power and belief,

One day I will roam night and day, proud of being me and feeling relief.


I bare my soul to the unknown, for I am a chameleon of the night,

I feel like I have a heart of stone, for I am a wanderer of a tortured mind,

Dressed in old wounds, slashed upon my feathered past,

The scars that I hold, a story bestowed, but the memories won't last.


I squeeze what life is left of mine,

I feed from a bottomless pit of lies,

I breathe with chills running down my spine,

Tonight I cry,

Tonight I choke the sky.


Tonight is mine...
